How many hours does it take to rebuild an engine?
If you need to replace the engine in your new vehicle, it will take an average of 15-25 hours for a mechanic to complete the job. You could save money by buying a long block or short block rather than having the mechanic put old engine parts on the new block.
My outdoor unit makes some unusual noises on cold nights. Is there any reason to be concerned?
Not typically–on a cold night a heat pump’s outdoor coil will freeze and it must be defrosted to maintain the unit’s heating efficiency. During this process the system will shift modes and may make some loud “whooshing” noises.
What should I do if my faucet is leaking?
Many of our clients are tempted to take out the tools and try to tighten a leaky faucet. If your faucet is leaking water, it is likely due to a worn out seal. Leak detection technicians can help determine if the parts need to be replaced.
What Size Heating / Cooling System Do I Need?
A too-large system will swiftly cool or heat your home, but you might need a cozier. This is because you will feel sticky and humid since the thermostat won't be satisfied before it can sufficiently remove enough moisture from the air during the cooling mode. Even moisture and mold issues might result from this. Additionally, short cycling, or making too many starts and stops, puts stress on your equipment and raises your heating and cooling costs.
What’s the difference between traditional and tankless water heaters?
The main difference between traditional and tankless water heaters is the way they heat and store water. Traditional water heaters have a large tank that stores and heats a set amount of water, which is dispensed when needed. On the other hand, tankless water heaters heat water on demand as it passes through the unit, without the need for a storage tank. This can provide energy savings by only heating water as needed, rather than constantly maintaining a heated tank. However, tankless units may have higher upfront costs and may not be able to supply as much hot water simultaneously as traditional units. Additionally, installation and maintenance requirements can differ between the two types of water heaters.
